We would just like to say a big thank you to Nicky for her superb support and guidance before, during and after our puppy training.
With your help, we have learnt the skills to be good dog owners and we now have a lovely, fun and obedient dog.
We are now confident that we can take her anywhere and we do! She goes with us on hikes (on or off lead), short trips, and even into friends houses who don't have dogs. People are always commenting on how well-trained she is and we always take that opportunity to sing your praises.
Thanks again, and best wishes for the continued success of your business.

Nicky is The Dog Whisperer! Somehow the puppies do exactly what she wants almost without a word. Apparently, it's all about the timing of treats and body language and it has has been a great help for me and Bonzo. The training is all positive and all about reward and encouragement, not about discipline or punishment. It's called dog training, but it's training us humans really. We have had puppy socialisation classes which were great fun - in the barn at first and then out in the field. Then we moved on to obedience training and are about to start continued obedience training. Bonzo is much better behaved than he would be without Nicky's help. She is very positive and supportive. The classes are small enough (4 or 5 puppies) to get plenty of time and attention and Nicky is always ready to listen to any concerns or problems you are having and always has the answer or options for you to try. Then it's just down to us (the owners) to practice and be patient. Thanks Nicky! Matt Norman
